Done User waypoint definition / DB
The user waypoints need to be better manageable.
Interface to create, edit, delete, list and rename user waypoints.
The editing should also allow custom entry via lat/lon coordinates, or FMS style relative bearing distance LSZH/137/8.5nm type inputs.
Also, the loading/import of a waypoints.txt as in the old desktop software should be somehow supported.
Hi Vince, user waypoints are indeed not yet implemented, sorry. Thats why they are still on this "what still needs to be developed" list with upvoting possibilites so we get a rough idea where we should focus on first.
I also consider useful to be able to classify an inserted way point.
For example being able to insert a way point as an airport, with orientation of the runway, type of bottom, length, etc.
This is to make it appear as such, with its orientation projection, etc.
Data not necessary to insert, instead, other types of points of interest
I would also support user waypoints since I fly into private strips not on the charts
Also, it is useful to be able to define a user waypoint as an “airfield” as we can now do with the Garmin GTN650/750 GPS navigators.
I occasionally fly RNAV instrument approaches - for training under VFR of course.
In addition it is a good backup in case the weather changes drastically.
Conversions of data packs and manual entry are very error prone and lengthy.
I wouldappreciate some "mechanics" to avoid this.
Please include the height of a waypoint somehow to have the autopilot do most of the work from the final approach point to the runway.
User waypoints are mostly implemented now (version 4.0.730)
